    “Throughout history, people have taken advantage of chaotic situations to prey on those who let their guard down during disastrous events.”

    Does IT help these unfortunate people, or reinforce the confidentially of business information hidden in plain sight ?

    … the quiet part: Amazon management is engaged in a competition for their third-party sellers’ customer lists.
    … the other quiet part: the FDA regulates Hand Sanitizers as “Drugs”. A retail package may or may not bear an National Drug Code (NDC), but the code exists nonetheless.

    Poaching business information in plain sight is a question of ethics for IT.
